I've been trying to get a working recipe for chocolate choux pastry.This basic recipe is aproximate:
- 80g all purpose flour
- 18g cocoa powder
- 65g butter
- 28g sugar
- 135g liquid (70g milk; 60g water)
- 150g eggs
I find that they don't rise really. They come out more like thick cookies. The recipe cautions that the cocoa is heavy and they won't rise as much - but this is pretty extreme.
My recipes for normal flavored ones come out fine.
Also, do you recommend cooking the flour and chocolate together in the sauce pan? I was thinking instead of mixing the chocolate in after at the time I'm mixing in the eggs...
